NRA signs licensing deal with Krüger Target Company
       
Earlier this year, Competitive Shooting Director Mike Krei was in Germany for the 50th Anniversary International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships in Munich. While there he met with Adreas Krüger, owner of the Krüger Target Company, to discuss the potential licensing of NRA targets for manufacture and distribution. Last week, that potential turned into a reality.

“We are pleased to announce that the Krüger Target Company and the NRA have signed a five year license agreement that allows Krüger to produce many of the targets used in NRA competitions,” said Krei. “Company owner Mr. Andreas Krüger and Sales Manager Joachim Seibold flew in from Germany to work out the contract and now they will be manufacturing NRA targets both nationally and internationally.”

With more than 11,000 tournaments scheduled for 2011 and 120+ different targets used in those competitions, the NRA has precise guidelines when it comes to the paper quality of their targets. Due to those standards, only a handful of printers are currently licensed to produce official NRA targets. Now Krüger can be added to that handful.

“Our company is excited to begin a partnership with such a strong organization as the NRA,” said Sales Manager Joachim Seibold. “We believe our targets will succeed in meeting the strict standards the NRA holds.”

Krei meets with Kruger Targets
       
Mike Krei, Director of the NRA's Competitive Shooting Division, recently attended the 50th Anniversary International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships in Munich, Germany. Here is one of his reports:

While on site at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Championships in Munich, I had the opportunity to met with the owner of Germany's Kruger Targets. Our discussion centered upon the potential licensing of NRA targets for manufacture and distribution.

Kruger, one of the premier targets paper printers in Europe, works with most European Union Shooting Federations to provide targets for their competitions. It is generally accepted that Kruger has the best heavy pulp target paper in the world and that directly relates to the excellent clean bullet holes which are essential for precise scoring.

Pictured above with Adreas Kruger, Owner of the Kruger Target Company, Krei tells NRAblog that it is very likely that the NRA's Competitive Shooting Division and Kruger Targets will have a contract signed by year end.
